About the Senior
Needs Dobermans and The Doberman Digest recognize the difficulty
in placing aging Dobermans in loving homes. Doberman rescue groups
have worked tirelessly to save and care for these precious creatures,
and we would like to help you find them forever homes. We are working
with a national Dobe magazine to publicize the plight of senior
Dobes, and creating a national database and website dedicated to
senior Dobes in need of families. Special Needs Dobermans will provide
the website and Doberman Digest will regularly commit space in their
bimonthly magazine to publicizing these senior Dobes' needs. The
Doberman community is truly reaching out to address this crucial
goal is to create maximum exposure of available seniors through
state-by-state listings with information as close to "real
time" as possible, including links to existing rescue sites.
Our long-term objectives include developing a comprehensive database
and coordinating with as many Doberman rescue groups as possible.
In addition, the Doberman Digest's bimonthly magazine will publish
the list of Dobes in need of homes.
note: The Senior Doberman Project limits its listings to only purebred
senior Dobermans. AKC or other kennel club registration is not a
requirement, but we do ask that all participants use their best
judgment in determining whether a potential candidate for listing
in the SDP is a purebred before submitting a senior for inclusion
in the project. Thanks!

The two Dobes featured on this site are seniors Little Arfin' Annie
and Oliver. They are part of the Dobertoons family of characters
in an ongoing series of stories that talk directly to the heart.
This artwork is widely known in the Doberman community for its playful
and accurate portrayal of the breed. We are only the second group
given permission to use the artwork, a fact that we are honored
by and very proud of. We extend our heartfelt thanks to Dobertoons.net
for helping The Senior Doberman Project, and for their continued
love and support of our Dobie friends!
